COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewers at Mountaineer Brewing Company have crafted this British-style brown ale for all to enjoy. A favorite in the pubs, Mountaineer Nut Brown Ale is smooth, balanced and aromatic. Brewed with English and American hops and a touch of chocolate malt, this deep-brown ale will leave you wanting another. We hope you enjoy this ale as much as we enjoy making it.

hotstuff (3941) - Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Rated on 5-30-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small off-white head, transparent reddish brown body, very little lacing and very little carbonation observed. The Aroma is chocolate malt, nutty, lightly roasty, and lightly hoppy. The Taste mimics the Aroma. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is easy to drink, but the flavors just did not come together as they should have. There is no WOW factor with this beer and it left me not putting it on my list of beers that I would drink again.

weihenweizen (1507) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light brown with small off-white head. Aroma is very light nut, not much lacing, and thin body. Taste is slightly sour nut and a hint of light caramel. Not a fan.

nickd717 (3403) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 9, 2011
12oz bottle. Medium brownish amber in color with a small off-white head. Really nutty aroma, like a teabag almost with how many nuts there are. The flavor is surprisingly not bad. Big nuts, pecan and hazelnut, with some caramel malts but a weaker finish. A bit thin on the palate with average carbonation. Not bad actually. The best I’ve had from Mountaineer.

ectuohy27 (520) - ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2011
Not bad for the style--the chocolate malt is a nice addition, the nuttiness is highly pronounced, and the hops a bit restrained for style and origin. Drinkable! (local gas station, Fayetteville, Fayette Co.)

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Light brown pour with a small head. Aroma is sweet, vegetal, and nutty. Taste is sour chocolate, nutty, roasted, and sweet.

Cavie (3672) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2011
Bottle via trade. Pours a clear orange color with a light ring of white head. Aroma is big chocolate malts, cocoa, caramel and nutty. Flavor is much the same. Lots of sweet malts and caramel sweetness. Not a bad sampling.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 9, 2011
Hazelnut, caramel, milk chocolate nose. Very malty, slightly sour, chocolate. Fairly good depth. Light nutty finish.

unclemattie (4034) - Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2011
12oz bottle, brown label. Medium brown color, no head. Aroma of raisin, toasted malt, a bit of butter. Blah. Flavor of roasted grains and sour apple. I was afraid it was infected. Once you get past the sour, it finishes with a chocolate malt character.

Hopopottamus (3) - - JAN 26, 2011 does not count
A nice, mild brown ale perfect for drinking a few. A short-lived fizzy head, with a wonderful malty, nutty, chocolate aroma. The taste is disappointing with malty and nutty flavors dominating. It sits watery and light bodied in the mouth and finsishes with very subtle roasted flavors, with woodsy nut flavors continuing. Overall it is, simply, a good brown ale.

Aroma is kind of nutty. First ever beer from West VA. A little watery with a big nut flavor. Pours a brown-esque color. Aroma is great and the nuttiness sticks all the way through but the rest is too thin. Almost there beer.
